Produced by Public Health England, a number of COVID-19 informational leaflets have been made available in a range of different languages.
Leaflet 2. COVID-19 vaccination: what to expect after vaccination
(Information for people who have had their first COVID-19 vaccination).
People who are most at risk from the complications of COVID-19 are being offered the COVID-19 vaccination first.
In the UK, there are 2 types of COVID-19 vaccine to be used once they are approved. They both require 2 doses to provide the best protection. Both have been shown to be safe and effective in clinical trials.
An independent group of experts has recommended that the NHS offers these vaccines to those at highest risk of catching the infection and suffering serious complications if they do catch the infection. This includes older adults in care homes and frontline health and social care workers. When more vaccine becomes available, the vaccines will be offered to other people at risk as soon as possible.
The vaccine you are being offered is amongst the first to be approved as safe and effective by the independent Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
You have just received your first dose and now should plan to attend your next appointment.
